WASHINGTON D.C – GREEN CITY One of the greenest cities in North America • According to a report from the non profit Green Roofs for Healthy Cities, Washington D.C. holds the largest area (1.2 million square feet) of green roofs across the country. The city stealthily supports green roof investment. • Green roofs absorb heat, have an insulating effect and therefore reduce the consumption of energy for heating or cooling. • Exposure on a green roof environment enhances concentration and productivity. Planting more trees across the city, the use of bikes as a means of transportation or of electrically driven carts for monument-touring are other measures taken up by the city in an effort to fight climate change and reduce the consumption of energy.
